    Nice weekend in thw sea of galile

    A nice weekend, lovely hotel well decorted, with nice small SPA. rooms are very compfort. However a bit noisy because of many young families with children, the breakfast was good but the acoustic in the dinning room is really bad.

    New beautiful hotel, only 20 parking lots for 120 rooms? Too much loaded with guests - restaurant swimming pool lifts.

    Beautiful designed, Bad service.

    Hotel is beautiful, everything is brand new and well designed. Breakfast was great. Service was terribly poor. We booked a dinner in the hotel and then was told that no dinner will be served today so had to find another arrangement. Hotel is right next to living houses and their view of the window is literally you in the pool so it doesn't feel so comfortable.

    A lovely hotel. Great friendly service . Food was good. Lovely infinity pool and fabulous view of the sea of Gaillee. Only 90 minutes drive from Tel Aviv. A great boutique hotel was great facilities in a great location. Would definitely come back again.

    Good enough to come back

    The notion of service level needs to be recalibrated when it talks about Israel. You can't expect to be pampered by the attendants, but the simple fact that there were a quick check-in and check-out is already happy. The restaurant service is insufficient, but it is on average what you find in Israel.
